a roof over our heads
this past week we finally accepted the fact that it is time for a new roof. our roof is old. and moss covered. (no, we will not be cutting down the large poplar and maple and birch trees that surround our house). the paint is beginning to peel off of the roof of our front porch so we know that damage is beginning. this is going to cost a lot of money. and there's nothing exciting about spending money on a roof. no trip to scotland (my next destination), no new bathroom (now that would be exciting!). so i try to take pleasure in the idea of a roof. a roof that protects. that covers. that holds the house together. (when you watch an abandoned shed or house decay, you know that once the roof goes, the rest follows quickly.)
i've been working on a new felt piece. about where i live. here is a detail that includes a roof.
